Get first aid into the national curriculum by 2015

The government have launched a new subject in schools this year called PSHE. It is for teachers to decided the needs of the pupils. I am trying to campaign regarding getting first aid as part of this subject as this is not statutory at present. Even after hard work from the British Red Cross we have been unsuccessful in our mission, however we will not stop here and believe everyone has the right to learn first aid and teaching all pupils in school as compulsory education could be the difference between a life lost and a life saved! Please sign if you agree.
